The Northeast Center provided key support to partners at Delaware State University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and Tennessee State University for a competitive, USDA-funded capacity-building project to provide traditionally underserved farmers in Tennessee, Maryland, and Delaware an opportunity to expand their networks. The team utilized network analysis to document the farmers’ networks, and developed a curriculum on network analysis for Extension educators, available here.
